At birth, I was everything
At two, I was playful
At three, I wanted to communicate
At six, I experienced a setback
At seven, I was overly bold
At eight, I provided safe passage
By thirteen, I was languishing, abandoned in the suburban wilderness
By twenty, I was a giant
By twenty-three, no one wanted to pay for me any more

Throughout life, this was my inspiration:

A riddle of companions

I think you are

All

The idea here is

To add a letter at the beginning of me corresponding to its position in the alphabet as mentioned in each line.

At birth, I was everything

"At birth" just refers to the word itself, all.

At two, I was playful

Ball

At three, I wanted to communicate

Call

At six, I experienced a setback

Fall

At seven, I was overly bold

Gall (bold and impudent behaviour)

At eight, I provided safe passage

Hall

By thirteen, I was languishing, abandoned in the suburban wilderness

Mall (large enclosed shopping area)

By twenty, I was a giant

Tall

By twenty-three, no one wanted to pay for me any more

Wall (referencing the US-Mexico border wall that nobody wants to pay for).
